Letter To The Editor – Mad As Heck
When is someone in this state going to use some common sense? Lawmakers want to enact a law requiring teenagers to blow into a device to start their cars and then continue to blow into it every 30 minutes to keep their car running – all to prove they have not been drinking.
While I understand it is against the law to use a cell while driving, I am unclear as to how “fishing” around for a tube that has fallen on the floor or been thrown into the back seat is any safer than sending a text message while driving. What if your 30 minutes are up and you just happen to be on the Interstate doing 60 mph and someone is on your bumper or you are in the process of moving through an intersection or a railroad crossing or if this unit malfunctions at an inopportune time?
I don’t know about you, but if this happens to my child, I will sue every idiot involved with this idiotic idea! Maybe I should join the masses and move from this, the worst state in the union, and leave our leaders wondering why. Like it is so difficult to figure out.
